Your wedding day will be filled with traditions. But before you get there, another time-honored tradition should be taken into consideration, one that will usher you into marital bliss. No, we’re not talking about a rehearsal dinner. We’re talking about the last hurrah, your final memories of the single life: your bachelor and bachelorette parties.
For the fellas, you want to reminisce about the good 'ol days — the all-nighters in college, the countless Sundays cheering and arguing over which teams would make it into the Super Bowl, and the last-minute trips to Vegas. The bachelor party is the chance to get together and celebrate one of the guys passing from bachelorhood to being a married man. It’s an opportunity for a groom to honor the bond with his comrades, celebrate his upcoming nuptials, and say adios to single life. With that in mind here’s the perfect playlist to send any bachelor off in style.
